Hamilton is infinitely quotable, and this lends itself very nicely to cross-stitched messages on pillows and wall decorations, of which there are MANY.
However, the ones that are available are too obvious! Although my suggestions start with some obviously inspiring quotes, I’m proud to say that my ideas get increasingly ridiculous. Someone get to work on these, stat!
And if anyone designs the Domestic Burr or Mulligan’s Butt patterns, please alert me. I need them decorating my apartment YESTERDAY.
For the earnest fan:
“What is a legacy?
It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.”

“Just let me stay here by your side,
That would be enough.”
